Falls from height are the biggest single cause of fatalities and major injuries at work. This course is designed to enable theatre staff to use the kind of scaffold, towers and ladders used in theatres.

The Bronze Award surpassed expectation, with more practical work than I had expected. The lecturers were all passionate about what they taught us and that helped me engage. I feel more proficient in all the fields the modules covered and the documents we received are more than enough to digest and help me develop even further.
